Welcome to Gluten Free New Zealand.
Currently this site has a Wiki containing information about gluten free options.
Many common foods in New Zealand contain gluten and this web site will grow to incorporate information to help those who must or choose to avoid gluten in their diet.
Gluten is a protein found in various grass seeds including wheat, rye, and barley. Between 0.5 and 1% of the population is severely intolerant of gluten because of a condition called coeliac disease, also known as celiac disease and a larger percentage of the population is mildly intolerant.
